The average woman uses 12 personal care products a day, and they contain an average of 168 unique ingredients.
This number may seem high, but think about your typical bathroom routine: Each morning you brush your teeth, take a shower, and use some soap, body wash, shaving cream, shampoo, and conditioner. After the shower, you put on lotion, deodorant, face cream, makeup, hair styling products...the list could go on and on.
Not all of these products are toxic, but many of them often contain dangerous chemical compounds like parabens, phthalates, and dioxins. Daily exposures to these chemicals really add up over time, so it's incredibly important to watch what you're putting on your body.
